The holiday season is here – hustle and bustle everywhere. The lines are long and the parking lots are full, but SOME of the stores are worth stopping at. Take Talbots for instance: they just mailed out their $20 certificates last week to everyone on their mailing list (rewards card holders or credit card holders). This is at least their third mailing this year! Those certificates are going to expire tomorrow – do NOT let them go to waste! As I waited in the line, every lady in front of me had their certificates out of their purses, ready to hand over to the cashier.
So here’s the thing, don’t just grab two pair of $10.00 stockings and bring them to the register – because they currently have a promotion going on: 30% off one item, or 40% off two items. That being said, to make your coupon valid (useable & worthwhile), you’ll want to either find a single item for at least $29.00 or multiple items totaling at least $34.00. Those totals will get you closest to the $20 mark after the % discount.
So, here’s what I grabbed: this adorable 3-pack of socks marked $29.50 (since polka dots and bows are some of my favorite things). Once they take the 30% off, that becomes $20.65. Take off the $20… 65 CENT plus tax… 69 CENTS total!!
That comes to exactly 23 cents per pair!
Talbots also has individual socks priced at $9.50 each, so with their current promotion and $20 certificate, you could purchase 4 pairs for about $3 including tax.
Don’t need the anything at Tablots but still have your certificate? Grab the 3-pack for under a dollar for an easy last-minute gift, or donate them to a local shelter or church.
‘Till next time!
